Acer Switch Alpha 12
Ask for superb performance without the noise
This lightweight 2-in-1 uses a space-age heat pipe cooling system to cool its high-performance CPU, so you get powerful computing without ever hearing the whine of a fan. Sporting a powerful 6th generation Intel® Core™ processor, the Switch Alpha 12 is the perfect blend ofproductivity, portability and flexibility.
Take your office with you
This thin and light device slips into your bag and disappears, only to reappear when you need to get work done. The full-sized magnetic snap-on keyboard is raised for comfy typing and doubles as a screen cover. Adjust the kickstand up to 165° and get the perfect screen angle. Its rubber anti-slip strip ensures the screen stays put.
Active Pen included
The Acer Active Pen allows for pressure sensitive drawing, and easy access to functions using the hover feature. Hold the pen close to the display and double-click on the lower button on the pen to launch Acer Hover. This allows you to quickly launch Acer Screen Grasp, Microsoft OneNote, Windows Journal, Microsoft Sticky Note or Microsoft Fresh Paint.
The Acer Active Pen has three modes:
Sleep mode: Acer Active Pen is waiting for either a button to be pushed or the tip to be touched.
